the speech today. romney talked about the need for new leadership and bold leadership to bring a resolution to the israel/palestine situation. when the cameras were not rolling a few months ago when millions weren't listening or watching, romney had a different take on the exact same subject. i'd like to play that right now. >> these are problems that are very hard to solve. i look at the policy for political purposes committed to the destruction and elimination of israel, and he's throwing the issues. i say there's just to way. what you do is you move things along the best wake you can, you hope for a degree of stability but you recognize it's going to remain unsolved. >> so i'm sorry. it gets hard to take this stuff seriously at a certain point with when the guy gives a major foreign policy speech and bash obama for not bringing resolution to this program as president when he has gone in front of a group of people and basically said the best you could do as president is kick the can down the road. i have a hard time taking that seriously. >> unfortunately, he can't say that in the speech.
hours ago mitt romney took a foreign policy swipe in what will be billed as a big speech. >> the president has failed to offer the tangible support that our partners want and need. i know the president hopes for a safer, freer and more prosperous middle east allied with us. i share this hope, but hope is not a strategy. the greater tragedy of it all is we're missing a historic opportunity to win new friends who share our values in the middle east, friends fighting for their own futures against the same violent extremists and evil tyrants and angry mobs that seek to harm up. >> right now the president is speaking at the national headquarters of the united farm workers union in california. does any of this really matter? do the polls matter? do ads, nearly a billion dollars worth matter? do all the campaign appearances tell the tale? we asked that with our team plus a friend of the show dr. john nan allen from politico. >> prish the intro. >> we have 29 days to go, and we know almost nobody decides based on foreign policy. does romney's foreign policy speech matter? does fo
as a bad ayn rand novel or mitt romney speech. this race is about whether or not our country will continue toward totalitarianism with the presidency that has made so much worse under both the bush and the obama administrations, which have shown content for the rule of law, due process, and restrict -- such contempt for the rule of law, due process, and restrictions on the u.n. is its constitutional. we must say no to assassinations of u.s. citizens, say no to indefinite detention without any semblance of due process, and to the continued drone killings that have made our nation so much less secure. so let your voices be heard loudly from the voting booth as you are guided by your most deeply held values. >> the justice party's presidential candidate rocky anderson and green party candidate dr. jill stein, as a participated in the presidential debate last night in real time averell podiums, albeit outside the gates of the official debate on "democracy now!" special broadcast "expanding debates time to see the three hour debate, go to democracynow.org. democracy now! is looking for feedback
want to talk a little bit about this speech today. thank you for joining us. what does mitt romney have to do in this speech? what sort of expectations are built up? guest: this will be romney's foreign-policy speech. it is clearly pretty late in the game for him to be delivering a speech like this. early voting has started in the number of states. he wants to continue some of the momentum he built up last week's debate. it's a chance for him to make a clear contrast between himself and the president. more importantly, it's another chance for his campaign to show that there is more of a choice between him and obama and less of a referendum. when romney pick his running mate this summer, there was a sense that this would be a chance for him to outline things for his own and have a policy position that would set him apart from the president. but we've seen over the past couple of weeks at the campaign dynamic has not changed that much. this is just one more issue on which the republicans are trying to get the president. >> what you have seen from the speech so far, is mitt romney going to
that governor romney plans to make a major foreign policy speech in the next few days. do the two of you think that the president has engaged in a coverup in his and the administration's escaped explanation of what happened at the u.s. consulate in benghazi? >> i will let others decide that. there are republicans and democrats in congress calling for an investigation as we need to have. response was slow. confused. inconsistent. they first said it was a youtube video and spontaneous mob. we now know it was a planned terrorist are attack. if this was one tragic incident that would be a tragedy in and of itself. the problem it is part of a bigger picture of the fact that the obama foreign policy is literally unraveling before our eyes on the tv screens. mitt romney is going to lay out a different vision for foreign policy. one that is a policy of american strength versus what i would articulate or say the president's policy is one of weakness. we are seeing the ugli fruits of the obama foreign policy unravel around the world on our tv screens. syria 20,000 dead people. iran closer to a nuclear w
, in the cores of our interview with paul ryan, mitt romney plans a major foreign policy speech, a major critique of obama's foreign policy in the next few days, probably after the debate. how vulnerable do you think obama's foreign policy is, and how important is it for romney to go after him? >> the mantra, usama is dead, but gm lives, that was a smart thing for them to do. i think today we see things a little bit differently and it is unraveling in benghazi and the question is, why did they send susan rice out? why was it snanecessary to go o on five shows and say it was spontaneous. and they can't the fbi get into the benghazi site, and, why are we not in benghazi today? i think, president obama is enormously vulnerable on the point, because i think most americans today question whether we are going to be the world's sole superpower, five years from now or maybe three years from now but it is incumbent upon mitt romney to do the same thing in a way that netanyahu did at the u.n. with the chart. you know, the bomb and the 90% red line. he needs to tie it together. in a really visual way. what
know, if you would have lisped that speech, you would assume atmospherically that romney had very strong disagreements with the obama administration, but his problem is that obama has run a foreign policy almost like a moderate republican. it's been internationalist, and not too liberal in temz of the human rights oriented. the syrian issue is the one place romney can find to make a distinction. as you point out, it's a very difficult policy to enact. the syrian insurgency is really an uprising of 100 armed militias all over syria that are not particularly well connected to one another. >> you wouldn't understand the goals of the people you are arming, and there is a danger that some of this would blow back in just a way in the afghan skas where the people we armed turn into terrorists. >> it sounded me like he is saying we should allow the saudis and the qatarese to provide more assistance. not arm them ourselves. sdhoo romney implied that the administration was being deceptive, trying to convince us that the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi was a random response to the f
-american communities. i am struck by this speech. if mitt romney gets criticized for going to the naacp and using the word obamacare why isn't barack obama criticized for a southern accent. if we are going to talk about pandering. this to me, you are watching somebody who we all know the president doesn't speak like that. she pandering and no one is talking about it. >> we have talked about it a lot on this show how when barack obama is speaking to certain people, whether they are workers at gm plants or black audience he tends to drop his g's and gets from folk i sy. >> in this was the middle of very successful presidential campaign. the media were siding by content to say obama says it, he is race transcending visionary beyond partisan. all this stuff that reporters were saying in 2008, they could have looked at this. it's been on youtube for five years. >> it is not same as 47%. >> why is it not. is it different? >> one difference mitt romney said he was wrong about the 47%. it took him a week. he said, quote, completely wrong. five years later, has president obama adjusted to anything in that
. >> mike: let me get michael in. you're a speech writer and written for a president. how does mitt romney take this great moment and make sthat he next debate? the expectation are going to be sky high on him and poor or low for obama. >> when you take the hill you've got to hold the hill. we've got a preview from president obama what the attack is looking at. that romney is lying in other words, to cover a radical agenda and i think, you know, romney is going to have to responsibled patiently and substantively and turn it to a more aggressive side against obama's record and values. and i think the man who showed up in denver can do that. president obama will be better in the next debate. he could hardly be worse. so, i-- (laughter) >> , but (applause) >> that's like saying the mets mets are going to have a better season, michael. the manner in which he failed in that debate by being passive, dictates thats' going to have to be aggressive and that presents a challenge for the the president. because when he's on the offensive, he often seems petulant. he has a tendency not just to criticiz
, you brought up the libya thing and people aren't interesting. if romney had given a speech, had made the argument that this is part of -- simply a symptom of a larger development of a whole foreign policy in collapse, of the fact that the al qaeda which he was spiking the football for a week. al qaeda is back. we have got a new slogan for biden. which is bin laden dead. al qaeda alive. that was the meaning of all of this you could have attached the libya story. not as a conspiracy or coverup story. you would say the larger argument, the reason they had to cover it up. the reason they had to pretend it was all about a demonstration and video is because they can't admit is completely exploded. so if you create the larger context all the little events otherwise go uns inned especially by the media. you put them in context. would get a headline with al qaeda is back and we're going to be the target number one. >> i have a third point but that's going to have to be next week. >> bill: all right, charles. >> i'm not governor perry. >> bill: factor tip of the day what i'm doing early tomorr
of the first time they heard romney talk at any length. his convention speech wasn't that well viewed. they didn't watch the republican primary debate. he is introducing himself to enormous number of people, enormous number of it will deciders. undecided and swingable independents. if he comes out presidential and goes on the offense with obama there is potential for a lot of upside for him. >> bret: we all have pollitis watching polls. but there is a new one today. the "wall street journal"/nbc poll puts the race at 4% for president obama. vi% for governor romney. if you look at the real clear politics average of polls, this is roughly about that from september 25 to octobe october 2. if you go to the "wall street journal" poll about the economy, approval, how is president obama doing handling the economy? vi% approve. 51% disapprove. brit, while right track/wrong track is narrowing there is still real negative numbers in the polls for president obama. >> well, for romney to have a chance, there better be. because that is the issue that is central. he had been gaining ground on the i
charged speech in virginia is distraction and accusing allies of romney of spreading the tape to the media. the romney come pain denies having -- campaign denies having any part in it. it surfaced last night on daily caller.com and thin ran on "hannity." the speech was open to the press in hampton university in june of 2007. we covered that speech on "special report" with brit hume. ran a sound bite from senator obama on his concern about the federal response to hurricane katrina. other media outlets covered it as well. but what was not covered then was senator obama's praise for his controversial pastor jeremiah wright. the additional comments what about he called disparity in the way new orleans got federal assistance after katrina and his charge that that was because of race. >> there is a law, federal law when you get reconstruction money from the federal government called the stafford act. basically it says when you get federal money you have to give a 10% match, local government has to come up with 10%. every $10 federal government comes up with, local government has to give $1. now
republican challenger and republican presidential candidate mitt romney delivers a foreign policy speech at the virginia military institute. >> here's tonight's moderator, steve prosinski. >> good evening and welcome to tonight's u.s. senate debate by billings gazette communication. i'm steve prosinski, editor of the gazette. between denny rehberg and senator john tester a democrat. three veteran montana voters will ask questions. montana public broadcasting and c-span are broadcasting tonight's debate. yellowstone public radio are broadcasting our forum also and the gazette is streaming it live on gazette.com. each candidate will have one minute to answer a question then the other candidate we have one minute to respond. each candidate will have two minutes for a closing statement. before we go to the questions, we all ask you hold your applause until off the closing comments. we're all here to listen to them, not each other. please respect them by holding your applause until the debate has ended thank you. now to the question. we'll start with a question for senator tester. you'll ha

-- responsibility. what's your policy? >>> mitt romney is reportedly planning a major foreign policy speech after the first debate. doesn't look like he'll be aggressively attacking president obama's handling of the libya attack and apparently romney advisors aren't happy about that. there's a split within the campaign team, some aides argue the libya story is a political gift to paint the white house as incompetent. others argue it's a mistake to run on foreign policy when they could be talking about what matters most to average americans, the economy. let's run this through the spin cycle. i think this is a double-edge sword. on the one hand, this election is about the economy. and regardless of how tempting foreign policy is right now, come election day, voters care most about the economy. that's true i think every year. we know this from 2004. which was supposed to be an election on foreign policy and still exit polls showed most voters cared about the economy. so i think the advisors who want him to stay on message about the economy are right. however, the other side to this, and i guess i'm
to me that it is certainly possible that this is a genuine surge. that mitt romney has managed by virtue of his debate performance and augmented by his speech today, in which he certainly looked presidential in a presidential setting and spoke that some authority of foreign policy issues -- mitt romney may be getting to look like a series canada. the challenger to a sitting president -- he may have a lot of help from that conditions in the country in the eyes of the public, but he needs to pass the tests himself. one of the tests is am i acceptable as a plausible president myself. it seems to me that the debate may have created that image in the minds of the public. that is so, his chances have greatly improved. lou: brit hume. we will have much more on the romney campaign's resurgence. we will have much more about that with the "a-team" coming up this hour and a great deal more. >> china is a threat for national security? the house intelligence committee awakening to a red storm rising. american companies not to work with two leading telecoms from china. shannon bream is here with a rep
that mitt romney has. it's very important. the last couple weeks there's been a little bit of a movement for the president. but listen, speeches don't create jobs. rhetoric doesn't create jobs. good ideas do. and the president, despite his efforts, has failed to help the american people get back to work and i think mitt romney has better ideas. that's what this debate will be about. >> business crill crystal and o republicans have questioned whether mitt romney has been specific about his ideas. here's paul ryan on fox news sunday. >> lowering tax rates by broadening the tax base works. and you can -- >> but i have to -- you haven't given me the math. >> i don't have the time -- it would take me too long to go through all of the math. let me say it this way, you can lower tax rates by 20% across the board, by closing loopholes and still have preferences for the middle class for things like charitable deductions for home purchases, for health care. >> where is the math? and is mitt romney going to be under pressure in this debate to produce the specifics as to how it will all add up? >> w

romney is planning a new speech. the following two presidential debates will include that. megyn: meantime president barack obama is in henderson, nevada. some say the city of henderson is a microcosm of the economy we have seen over the past few years. yet the latest polls show the race in nevada is neck and neck and that is causing -- ed henry live in vegas. hey, ed. >> the president -- they are calling it debate camp in henderson. 20 miles from where i am right now it's an opulent resort known as lake las vegas that is symbol i of the boom and bust. that whole lake las vegas resort where the president is doing his debate prep. it's modeled after an italian village. it went bankrupt the last few years. it's now sort of coming back and the president is hoping that is a microcosm that he's pushing this recovery along slowly, not just mere in nevada but all along the country. it's interesting to hear john roberts about chris christie raising expectations for mitt romney. the president at a rally in vegas last night tried to do just the opposite and lower expectations. >> i know fo
